So every year we have something called the Santa Ana winds that blow through Socal with intense purpose. I like to refer to it as Totoro Wind.
It does leave behind quite a mess and this year is no different. There are power outages, torn tree branches everywhere and bad hair toupees making their presence known.
People freak out like it's the end of the world. This boggles my mind. Yes it's not normal. Yes it does get crazy and yes our lives are somewhat disrupted with inconveniences. But get a grip.
Instead of grumbling and complaining, I believe we're thinking about it all wrong. The fact that you're able to read my post right now indicates that you have access or own a device that still allows you to connect to the internet. Good. Also, the fact that you're still ALIVE and functioning is an even greater and quite fabulous news.
So really when you truly stop to think about it, our daily lives (sans the insane wind) are actually very blessed. Yet even during those days, we complain. A day where we're able to drive to work because our car isn't smashed by a fallen tree is a WONDERFUL day. A day when we can go online, have heat, eat hot food and have the lights on and off by our choice is a FANTASTICAL day!
Even with a blustery day like today, it could always be worse.
And if anything.. it's the perfect day to fly a kite :]
So here's to appreciating the little things.. which really when you add them up come out to pretty big things that we often take for granted.
Life is Good.
Happy first day of December btw.
I have a feeling it's going to be the most beautiful yet <3
